St Patrick’s Day Gets the Green Light at Ashcombe House

Residents and staff at Ashcombe House in Worting road celebrated all things Irish for St Patrick’s Day this week. The home was decorated with shamrocks and everyone dressed in green to mark the day.

Held on March 17th, Saint Patrick’s Day actually observes the death of St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, but the day has come to be a huge celebration of Irish heritage and culture.

Staff and residents at the home marked the day by learning all about Ireland, reminiscing visits to the emerald Isle before live singing and piano performance by Carl Cassidy from reminisce Entertainment. Carl really got the party started with residents dressing up, singing and dancing along. The afternoon ended with Chocolate Guinness brownies and washed down with a Guinness

Senior Carer, Mellissa Irwin said: “Our residents have all had a brilliant day today, everyone has enjoyed the festivities .We had a fantastic time listening to Irish music and watching Irish dancing, we sampled some Guinness too.”
